Other images may have any size you choose, but please re-size them before you upload.
Generally, the image file size should not exceed 500kb.

The best way to resize images (if you don't have photoshop) is with pixlr editor.
It's easy to do - here is a quick tutorial



Portraits for Faculty/Staff Directories

They should be 200x300 (200 pixels wide, 300 pixels tall)

There are many cases where faculty/staff listings need to be shared on multiple pages, i.e. cabinets, committees, task forces. If all images are the same size this will give all directories a clean and organized look.

Images for sliders

All slides in a slideshow need to be the exact same size.
The above image is 1170x514 (1170 pixels wide, 514 pixels tall)
1170 px is the maximum width of the content area. That is the recommended width for slides.

Sliders on the ISU homepage are 1800X790 px because it has a wider content area.


Picture Links Menu

All images used in the Picture Links Menu need to be the exact same size.
We recommend using a 2:3 ratio. Typically, we use 800x533 (800 pixels wide, 533 pixels tall).
